Donald Trump’s bizarre hairdo explained in scandalous book

A former White House employee reveals.

What is behind US President Donald Trump’s bizarre hairdo? It’s one of the world’s most bizarre puzzles, and now it may have finally be answered. 

According to journalist Michael Wolffe’s new expose, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Trump’s hairdo is the result of scalp-reduction ­surgery, careful styling held in place by strong hairspray and too much cheap dye. 

The New York post reports that the President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, often makes fun of father’s comb-over and finds humour in explaining how the bizarre style comes together. 

Wolffe writes in his book, ‘She often describes the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction ­surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the centre and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray.’

He continues, ‘The colour, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair colour.’ 



A scalp reduction procedure, also known as alopecia reduction, is a medical procedure that entails a surgeon removing a man’s bald spot, then sewing the more hairy skin back together.
